The history of Stani, started off about 80 years ago from the village Athanassios Diakos, birthplace of the hero of the 1821 revolution, in the district of Fokida. This is also the birthplace of the most important, export-oriented, milk industrialists in Greece (e.g. Daskalopoulos of DELTA, Filippou of FAGE).

This was the home village of Nikolaos Karageorgou, founder of Stani, who left for Piraeus in 1931 in order to open a business whose sole mission has been ever since to produce the best dairy products in Greece, an activity Nikolaos Karagiorgos knew better than any other.

He opened his first store in the Evangelistria area of Piraeus, and his business was brisk right from the beginning. But ten years after its inception, the bombs that befell Piraeus during WWII, made it necessary for the business to relocate to the very center of Athens: in Omonia Square at Kotopouli street.
Stani has been operating in that same area since 1949. The new store was appreciated soon by Athenians and the first successes were not long in coming. In 1953 Stani received a certificate of authenticity and a gold medal from the International Exhibition in Thessaloniki for its yogurt made of sheep milk, and a little later a patent for the same product.
“Uncle Nikos” knew empirically what we know about yogurt from the rich bibliography on the subject, and it is yogurt that was the core product on which the business was based.In 2005, Stani was totally revamped and modernized, in tandem with stricter health regulations, maintaining however the character of a traditional dairy-products patisserie.

Today Stani is being operated by the same founding family and is a favorite spot for Athenians, as it has been for the past 78 years. Specifically Stani’s customers are Athenians and inhabitants of the wider district of Attica in general, as well as visitors to the city from all over Greece.
